What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Deep Space Nine Review: An Amazing Documentary
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine was the fourth television series in the Star Trek franchise. It ran for seven seasons and a hundred and seventy-six episodes in syndication. The finale, "What You Leave Behind", aired on June 2nd, 1999. DS9 was markedly different from Star Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation. The show setting was a recovered enemy space station near the planet Bajor. A grieving Starfleet commander, Benjamin Sisko (Avery Brooks), assigned to help the Bajorans recover from a devastating occupation; discovers a wormhole to a distant region of the galaxy, the Gamma Quadrant. What followed was a thrilling, slow-burn escalation to the epic, Dominion War; a conflict against powerful Gamma Quadrant adversaries that threatened the United Federation of Planets.

What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Deep Space Nine is a wonderful retrospective and coda to the beloved series. The documentary is produced and directed by Ira Steven Behr,

‘Star Trek’ Doc: Shout! Acquires ‘What We Left Behind’

‘Star Trek’ Doc: Shout! Acquires ‘What We Left Behind’
Shout! Studios has just acquired worldwide rights to the new Star Trek feature documentary What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Shout! plans to release it across multiple platforms including theatrical by year’s end.

The in-depth retrospective approaches the edgy Deep Space Nine as the most-misunderstood of the franchises that have flown under the banner of Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek brand. When it premiered in January 1993 as a spinoff of Star Trek: The Next Generation, many devoted Trek fans thought the show flouted Roddenberry’s overarching vision of humanity’s noble and united future in the age of interstellar exploration.

The syndicated Deep Space Nine (created by Rick Berman and Michael Piller) eventually won fans over and endured for 176 episodes over seven seasons with its chronicle of a space station that is (not unlike Casablanca in the classic film) a place of intrigue,

Mindy Newell: For The Love Of Spock And Stingrays

  • Comicmix
“…More importantly, the personal touch provokes some bracing moments that wouldn’t have been possible otherwise. It’s one thing to have Neil DeGrasse Tyson or various Nasa technicians talk about how they were inspired by Spock – or even to have Trek-loving actors like Jim Parsons and Jason Alexander say that they sympathize with stories of Nimoy staying mostly in character when his show wasn’t shooting. But only Adam Nimoy could comment knowledgeably about what it was like to have a drunken argument with Leonard Nimoy and then walk out into a world where images of Mr. Spock were impossible to avoid. The best scenes in For The Love Of Spock are the most conventional, featuring famous folk praising a pop culture legend. But the scenes that most linger in the mind are more like the one where the director confesses his complicated feelings about his father to another Spock,

Trieste 2016 Review: For The Love Of Spock, A Fascinating Portrait

More than any other character or image from the 50-year culture phenomenon that is Star Trek, arguably nothing is more instantly recognizable than Spock, and his gesture of greeting. When Leonard Nimoy died last year, the outpouring of affection was overwhelming, but perhaps not surprising given the rapid fan base of the franchise. Adam Nimoy (son of Leonard)'s documentary For the Love of Spock is a very intimate and interesting portrayal of the man and the actor, his personal and professional development, and his relationship with his son.Adam Nimoy had already begun work on the documentary in the few months before his father's death. It was originally intended as a film about the character and its cultural significance. But after Nimoy's death, his son decided...

Adam Nimoy Interview: For The Love Of Spock

James Hunt Oct 26, 2016

Adam Nimoy chats to us about his documentary honouring his father, the late, great Leonard Nimoy.

The death of Leonard Nimoy was a sad occasion for all fans of Star Trek, but filmmaker and director Adam Nimoy didn’t just lose a cultural icon – he lost a father. As a result, Nimoy’s planned documentary about Spock and the character’s impact was expanded to examine his late father’s life and the the not-always-perfect relationship between the two of them.
